“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 50 - Overconfidence

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Overconfidence".

Don't Be Nervous Andrew!

Ever feel rejected?  This kid does.  Well... he did before he was a contestant on America's Got Talent last week. The episodes were from the auditions held in Austin, Texas - the gay friendliest city in all of Texas!

Not only, did Andrew De Leon manage to get a standing ovation from the judges, he got one from the entire audience!   Believe me, our jaws just dropped when he started to sing. 

The touching moment comes when he responds to Howard Stern and says, "Um, I'm just so used to being rejected and I'm not really good at anything, so... this is amazing."

Sharon Osbourne continues by saying, "..please don't say that you're not good at anything, because you got an amazing voice, and you are an individual!"

But Howie Mandell said it best when he closed out the show by saying,  "You know, you've been hiding in your room all these years, but you never let the world see who you are or what you are, and it's not that you're good at anything, you are great!"

But Mommy, I Want To Say "Gay!"

So when should you say, "Gay"?  This lovely flowchart should help guide you. LOL.

I'd Rather Buy 45 Hammers At A Dollar Store Than Spend $45 On A Nickeback Ticket...

Damn, it sure must suck to be Nickelback or it may suck to be Josh Gross - take your pick.  Lol.  Obviously the Boise, Idaho Newspaper writer isn't a fan of the the band.

Quoted - Carrie Underwood on Marriage Equality

Her fan base may be made up of people who share Christian and Conservative beliefs, but she sure as hell don't share their same values. We love you Carrie!!!

"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I can't imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love...  Our church is gay friendly. Above all, God wanted us to love others. It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.' No. We're all different. That's what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It's not up to me to judge anybody,
- Carrie Underwood to The Independent on marriage equality

In addition to supporting gay marriage, Underwood went on to condemn people who use the Bible for hate, saying, "That's not how I would want myself as a Christian to be represented."
